'r1{caret}!' notation includes commit 'r1' but excludes all of its parents.
 This is the single commit 'r1', if standalone.

+While '<rev>{caret}<n>' was about specifying a single commit parent, these

+'HEAD{caret}2^@', however you cannot say 'HEAD{caret}@{caret}2'.

That ^ should be {caret}, right?

Yes (I think so - will change).

I had planned to change it but it looks like I missed it.

In an earlier version I hadn't changed any of them (or maybe just one) and the asciidoc barfed. I suspect that the ^ ^ symbols have to be paired properly, and a bad pairing around / across the quotes makes the parsing fail. it looks like singletons (which clearly never pair) are accespted 'as is'

I think the later examples are inside some form of a block quote with no expansions at all.
